For you have trusted in your wickedness; you have said, ‘No one sees me’; your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; and you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’
Many people boast to say that we live in the best time of humanity on Earth thanks to huge advances in science. For these people, the quality of our life is far superior to what was to our ancestors. It is said that medicine has managed to keep us healthy and has extended our life expectancy; that the buildings we build today are better and thanks to advances in modern agriculture we have more and better foods. In Isaiah 47:10, the Bible warns us that human science is misleading.
Perhaps people can accept as valid the arguments scientific breakthrough today and its superiority over the society of ancient generations. After all, many scientists endorse such claims, which appear to give more credibility. I will not compete with my scientific colleagues about it; but I, as a scientist endorse what Isaiah 47:10 says that our science is misleading and is in the highest degree.
The advances of modern medicine are not as good as it looks. In fact, the modern pharmaceutical industry is unable to produce a single pill that will cure any disease. All they do current drugs are to reduce symptoms without attacking the root of the disease and, thus, keep us alive; but sick. What modern science itself hidden is that between 75-80% of the world population still used therapeutic herbs and their results are not inferior to those of conventional medicine.
Modern science also hides the chemical components present in the herbs are part of the physiological functions of the living flora and therefore have better compatibility with the human body. Also it hides what the statistics say, that the possibility of death from herbs is 1 in 1 million, while the possibility of death due to prescription drugs properly is 1 in 333, medical malpractice is 1 in 250 and 1 in 80 hospital infection.
As for the advantages of modern building materials, science also deceives. For one example, the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York collapsed in a matter of minutes after the impact of two planes on September 11, 2001. Meanwhile, the pyramids of Egypt, the city of Petra in Jordan and Macchu Pichu in Peru have been standing for centuries and construction techniques are still wowing civil engineers today.
I could go on the delusions that have sold us about modern science; but I think just what I have said so far. Isaiah 47:10 is a scripture successful with regard to awaken human consciousness that our wisdom will never be compared with God. If you want access to real science, to genuine wisdom, instead of searching the Internet or reading the most famous books of science, read the Bible. Do not believe wise in your own opinion or rely on the opinion of human wise. God who created all that exists, as the divine designer knows much more than all the wise men of the world together. Follows literally His instructions and live forever. God bless you.
